I'm sure this question would have been asked before. Sorry to repeat. But I'm also wondering about the likelihood of having another baby with the same issues. My 5month old son (that I know of) can't handle dairy, soy, egg or nuts... Or peanut I think. Our paed said there was no truth to the belief that I'm more likely to have another baby with these problems. If your first baby had these problems, was your next baby free from them??

When did your child outgrow their intolerance or allergies?

My first baby, now 5.5 has no intolerances except for kiwi fruit. We just keep him away from it.
My middle child, now 2.4 has multiple allergies. She has thankfully grown out of her egg, but still is allergic very much to dairy. She also has other allergies which we are currently trying to work out.
The last baby who is almost 8 months has had a range of foods excluding egg but has had dairy and so far he is completely fine. From my understanding and experience of allergies, my DS will be fine.
Hope that helps a little.

When DD1 was young she had an intolerance/allergy to strawberries (would get bad rashes). She grew out of that at about 4yrs. Nothing else until she suddenly developed an allergy to kiwifruit 3yrs ago. She can't eat kiwifruit or fruit salad etc that has kiwifruit in it even if she takes it out. Then she is asthmatic.
Then when our twins were born we discovered they were both cows milk protein intolerant and they are both asthmatic. DD3 grew out of the CMPI at about 13mths while DD2 hasn't grown out of it.
So, now that they are older we have one DD who is allergic to kiwifruit and twin DD's with one CMPI and the other with no allergies/intolerances.

My eldest has no allergies or intolerances. DD2 has eczema and was allergic to peanuts. She was diagnosed as allergic at 18 mths-ish and I never took her back to the specialist til she was about 6-7, after I noticed shed eaten peanut m&ms without a reaction, they tested her and she has outgrown it. Her eczema is also much less noticeable, if she puts moisturizing cream on every day she doesn't need steroid creams.
My third us allergy/intolerance free.

DS1 was allergic to dairy, wheat, nuts, eggs, citrus and I suspect soy but it was never investigated.
He'd outgrown everything but eggs and nuts by the time he was 4.

Thanks everyone for sharing about your experiences. 4 sounds like a good age to outgrow things.
DS has always been very snotty. Not clear, runny stuff but greenish, balls of snot (really sorry tmi!) that just hang around in his nostrils. He hates me trying hard to get them out. Did any of your kids with allergies have something similar? I'm not sure if this is connected or not...

it would depend on the severity of the allergies, have you had a skin prick test?
generally they grow out of eggs by the time they are 5 or 8.
nuts only 20% of kids grow out of it and it can be volatile, reaction can be mild one day and bad the next, and visa versa.
Im not sure about dairy and soy but they do tend to out grow them. I was told avoidance is the best way to help outgrow them.
my first child has no allergies, my 2nd who is now 2 is ana to eggs and slight allergy to nuts. i have hayfever.
i am on a facebook allergy mum group which is wonderful if you'd like a link.
also check out anaphylaxis australia online they have lots of info

My first child has none
My second child had a reaction to eggs at 9 or 10 months. MIL game them to him again about 6 months later!! Thankfully he was fine.
He had a pretty serious reaction too. Some say I tried him to early, but the other babies in my DIG were doing it and they were all fine and the kids are only a few weeks apart.

My eldest daughter has Salicylate sensitivities and is dairy intolerant. Her salicylate sensitivity has decreased as she has gotten older, but dairy has gotten worse.
My babe reacted through my breastmilk from 4 weeks of age, gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, legumes. She is 9 months old and I can now eat trace amounts of some of them without upsetting her too much. She can only tollerate a handful of veges atm.
